Help shape the future of transit service in Oakville for the next five years
Monday, November 20, 2023
Oakville Transit is seeking feedback from the community to help enhance its service delivery. Members of the public are invited to share their experiences to help inform Oakville Transit’s Five-year Business Plan, which will guide and prepare Oakville Transit for community growth by providing a roadmap for where and how transit services are delivered over the next five years.
The plan will explore new service strategies, capitalize on planned investments in rapid transit services and better connect customers travelling within town, to surrounding municipalities, and the broader Greater Toronto Area.
Members of the public can stop by one of the Pop-up Transit Talk events happening this week to provide input:
Wednesday, November 22
10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital First floor, near retail stores 3001 Hospital Gate
2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sheridan College, Trafalgar Road Campus SCAET Building, front entrance 1430 Trafalgar Road
Thursday, November 23
8 to 10:30 a.m. Oakville GO Station 214 Cross Avenue
11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Bronte GO Station 2104 Wyecroft Road
Feedback can also be provided through an online survey, open until December 7.
Transportation Master Plan – Public Information Centre on December 7
The town is also working on a study to update its Transportation Master Plan (TMP) which will accommodate growth to 2051 and establish a comprehensive multi-modal plan with policies, programs and infrastructure improvements to enhance mobility for all road users, including a focus on more sustainable modes of travel such as walking, cycling and transit. As part of the collaborative nature of the two projects, the Transit Five-year Business Plan team will attend the TMP public information centre on December 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Oakville Town Hall. The team will be available to speak to attendees about transit services, development of the business plan and how this work will support the TMP study process.
“Efforts to create a plan to enhance Oakville Transit services over the next five years reflects the town’s commitment to ensuring local public transit is accessible, sustainable and responsive to the needs of our growing community. I encourage everyone to take this opportunity to share their experiences with transit, as valuable input from the public will help us plan for future improvements.”
